Linear groups (where we allow any field) which are also finitely generated are reasonably well behaved in terms of abstract group theoretic properties (for instance being residually finite and satisfying the Tits alternative). However they need not be good from a geometric point of view (eg they can have distorted infinite cyclic subgroups).

However we show that the finitely generated groups in the title do have much stronger properties in line with (one definition of) non positively curved groups, and we present applications.

This talk is part of the Geometric Group Theory (GGT) Seminar series.
